Musings in the Dark: Interview with Dennis Upkins


Interview with Dennis Upkins

Recently, during the weekend of the Black Comic Book Convention, I was interviewed by fellow author and my brother from another mother, Dennis Upkins, about my latest novel Tainted.  Here is a portion of the interview:
DRU: First of all, thank you so much for taking the time to chat with me today. Second of all, congrats on the new book Tainted. I've started reading and my God is it intense. Before we get to Tainted, let's go back for a moment. Corruption, your debut novel. How did it feel having a title under your belt?

AR: It feels amazing; like I’ve sucker-punched a mountain or kicked a planet out of orbit.

DRU: Looking back on your journey from then to now, what stands out for you?

AR: Sometimes I can’t believe I wrote the book.  I re-read certain passages (usually near the end) and I tell myself that I sat down and I wrote it and I know I sat down and I wrote it, but it feels like someone else did.  In a way, that’s true, because when I’m under the control of the muse, I am not myself.  Or maybe I am who I truly am when I’m being directed and the person you’re talking to right now is the interloper.

You can read the rest of the interview here.  Thanks, Denny!
